I've owned a GS for a couple of years and enjoyed the experience, or so I thought until I took ownership of a new Mk3 V. This bike is fun fun fun not to mention fast up to legal limits, cheap to ride and service. I'm tall lad but can ride all day in comfort on this cracking performing bike. It gets a solid 10/10 from me.

Yep, I find it off putting. When I initially set out the seat feels pretty plush, 60 minutes in and I've got to pull over. My backside feels like it's just come second in an a*** kicking contest. I'd love to do a long journey for both the experience and to get some serious miles under my belt, but I'm not doing it on that seat. I plan to replace it when I get the readies together. I'm 6'2" and with a 32" inside leg so I can just flat foot it, so adding height would be pointless for me. I had considered a Kawasaki's lower seat but that may not resolve the issue. I could live with the lowered height as it's only 2cm but I don't know if there padding would be any better than the standard seat. Has anyone bought the lowered seat ? If so, was there any difference in comfort? I appreciate that we are all built differently, but I really need to do something about my current situation.

I would definitely recommend the Air hawks comfort seat been using one for years and have swopped it on to various bikes, better than spending on a specific seat and waving goodbye when you sell the bike. Air Hawks are about £100 quid. Last Friday I rode 140 miles to visit my mom and 140 back on Saturday, 7hours riding in total, started to get a bit achy the last hour on the return trip. They add between 1/2" to 1" on the ride height.
Hope this helps
Cheers Geoff. Havent ridden for a few years so was looking for a bike that might be quite forgiving. Looking forward to getting out on it and having some fun when it arrives Friday. 😁
